Guest speakers:

Dr Tim Lawrence (University of East London)
Pluralism, minor deviations and radical change: experimental music in
downtown New York, 1971-85

Professor Simon Emmerson (De Montfort University)
Experimental: how helpful is the scientific metaphor in new music?

The symposium is designed as a platform to share graduate, doctoral
and post-doctoral research into experimental music in its broadest
sense. Papers are invited from researchers into all styles of
experimental music including electronic, electro-acoustic, free jazz,
progressive rock, free improvisation etc. To encourage practice-as-
research, there will be a concert of research-related items in the
Saturday evening, so contributions to this are also invited.

If you offer a paper, please provide an abstract (approximately 100
words) of your proposed paper (see attached form). Papers should be
approximately 20 minutes in length. Each 30-minute slot allows 10
minutes for questions and discussion.

If you offer a concert item, please provide a title, instrument/voice
and composer details for the work/s to be performed, and a statement
of approximately 50 words describing how the performance relates to
your research (see attached form). Concert items should be no more
than 5-10 minutes in length. Please note that there is only limited
time available for such items.

If you wish to attend the symposium but not as either presenter or
performer, then please email your contact details and indicate if you
intend to be present for the whole event or just one of the days,
specifying which. Attendance is free but a charge will be made for food.

Researchers interested in presenting are welcome to offer a paper, a
concert item or both. For presenters, lunch and other refreshments
will be free and a donation will be made towards travel costs. For
more information about the Symposium, please e-mail the event organiser.
